For this week's TWitF, resident artist Baarbarian has put together a portrait of the modern man. Desperate, alone, undead (metaphorically), with only the comfort of alcohol to get him through his wintry days, the modern man can barely derive any enjoyment even from a Clipse video made with a Microsoft Kinect. Truly, these are dark times. (Subtext: Why isn't it spring yet?)
But! There is hope, provided your definition of "hope" includes the possibility of winning a t-shirt with a drunk gambling zombie on it, and why wouldn't it?
We've made it through another week, which means it's time to look back at the past five days of science and tech before we move forward into the next. As always, this also means you've got a chance to win a t-shirt with Baarbarian's fantastic PopSci-inspired design. This week, that design includes mice, rats, Androids, and hemp--a winning combination if we've ever seen one.
Ah, another week of great science and tech posts. This week, we've got a particularly robot-heavy TWitF t-shirt prize for one lucky reader. All you've got to do is tell us which of the stories featured in this week's t-shirt design is your favorite and why, via either Facebook or Twitter.
According to a certain President's certain yearly speech, we're in for a great future of scientific progress (not that he looks too confident in this picture). But we say, pshaw! Anyone who's been reading PopSci over the past week--specifically, the five stories hidden above--would have come to the same conclusion.
This week, Doctor Tentacle appears to be planning an invasion of Central America. Once again, our resident artist Baarbarian has summed up five of this week's most outrageous stories in one illustration.
The weather outside may be frightful, but the weather here at This Week in The Future looks pretty toasty. Baarbarian has summed up four of this week's most outrageous stories in the scene above, and as always, if you are the first to correctly identify all of them in the comments section, you will win a T-shirt of this week's image.
